Twilight Time...

Joel was one of my first seniors of the summer and I wanted to do something special just for him. I learned that he is a bigtime "Twilight" fan, so first we shot in some cool locations - then I came up with this special image processing to give some of his portraits an other-worldly feel to them...he loved it!

August is shaping up to be prime time for the Class of 2010 to have their senior portraits created! If you've been thinking about it, do yourself a favor and call to make YOUR appointment as soon as possible - available time is filling up fast! As hard as it may seem to believe right now, that yearbook deadline will be here before you know it!

On Location Senior Portraits Are Great Fun!

Oh my goodness, I had SO MUCH FUN working with 2010 Senior Super Model Ely this Monday just passed! I've been wanting to photograph a gal in a long dress in the water at Horsetail Falls for like EVAH and Ely is helping me make my dream come true...while it was too cold that morning (hard to believe we were roasting in 100+ heat not all that long ago!) for her to actually lay down in the waterfall's pool, she did bravely wade in and splash around in the icy water - what a pro! We create WONDERFUL images that I cannot wait to finish working up - here's a couple of my favorites of Ely in her simple yet elegant white gown...

BTW, if you're reading this and you are a member of the Class of 2010, let me ask you: have YOU booked your senion portrait session yet? Might be a good idea to get on that right away, while you still have a choice of photographer - otherwise you might just have to settle for much less than you deserve! If you're interested, MY phone number is 541-436-2755...

"GQ" Julian

I'm doing a bit of computer "house cleaning" this Sunday, working on non-client images, archiving older files...this is actually a LOT more fun than it sounds 'cuz every once in awhile I come across a real gem I missed in my inital review! Like this grab shot of my friend (and Hood River photographer) Julian Hamilton - the man has style, don't you agree?!!
